In celebration of the National Literature Month, the Nagkahiusang Magsusulat sa Cagayan de Oro (NAGMAC) and the Ateneo Institute of Literary Arts and Practices (AILAP) of the Ateneo de Manila University, in partnership with the Xavier Center for Culture and the Arts and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, present the 2017 Kausaban Forum on Teaching Creative Writing to be held 22 April 2017 at Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan.
Kritika Kultura, the international refereed journal of language, literary, and cultural studies of the Department of English, Ateneo de Manila University—in partnership with the Rizal Library (AdMU)—presents “Teodoro Agoncillo's The Revolt of the Masses: Text and Context After 60 Years,” a series of lectures featuring Paul Dumol, Vernon Totanes, and Resil Mojares. The event will be on Thursday, December 1, 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., at the Rizal Library (4/f). The lecture is open to the public.
The lectures will revisit the text of Teodoro Agoncillo's The Revolt of the Masses, reconstruct the context in which it was written and published sixty years ago, and re-examine its continuing influence on Philippine historiography. What made Revolt revolutionary 60 years ago? In what ways can it still be considered revolutionary now?
